The RP has started, but sign ups are still ongoing and won't close.

INTRODUCTION

Originally conceived by NES2, this RP is a dual-forum RP where the Role Players of Pokémon Elite 2000 (PE2K for short) go up against the Role Players of the Global Trade Station Plus forums (GTS). Within the RP’s storyline itself, RPers from PE2K take on the role of one of the factions in the RP while GTS’s RPers take on the role of the other. There are a few smaller NPC factions also, but these are simply inserted into the storyline to provide additional depth. The main conflict will be between these two factions and the actions of the characters that belong to GTS and PE2K role players will be the main drivers of the unfolding storyline.

The RP is set in the world of Talandra, a world similar to the ones in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Series where this world is inhabited only by Pokémon, which means no humans will appear in this RP. In this RP, you will assume control of a Pokémon character.

Note that the events mentioned in this storyline are all events that have happened already. The RP opens a few months later after these events have happened:

THE STORY SO FAR

As it has always been on the Pokémon world of Talandra, there were Pokémon that kept to nature, and there were those that had spent their time focused on the innovation of technology and engineering. Officially, those that kept more to nature called themselves the Nightjade. Meanwhile, the Pokémon that made up those that focused on technology were called the Urban Unity, striving to advance the progression of Pokémon civilization and technology. In truth, throughout time, these two factions have had their violent enmities, but for many years, the two factions simply kept their distance from each other and attempted to stay out of each other’s business. While the Pokémon of Nightjade flourished with the beauty and wonders of nature, the Pokémon of the Urban Unity constructed buildings, developed science and innovation, and founded a more civilized society. For many years, the Pokémon of the Urban Unity believed they had the advantage over the Nightjade simply because they had weapons and even motorized vehicles while the Nightjade didn’t. Regardless, as before, they simply kept their distance, still having plenty of land to develop on.

The Nightjade soon made a very vital discovery that had once been thought to be impossible. Naturally, the Nightjade Pokémon were the only ones that had access to certain evolutionary items such as Fire Stones, Leaf Stones, and Dragon Scales. For the longest time, it had been assumed that only certain Pokémon could ever actually use these items. Many Pokémon thought only a Vulpix, Growlithe, or an Eevee could ever use a Fire Stone, and so on. But in truth, this was not entirely true. For others… it simply took a longer amount of time and more prolonged exposure to the stone. Originally, Pokémon that thought they couldn’t use these stones simply ignored them or quickly traded them for something else. It wasn’t until one day that an Eevee named Jess and her friend Natalya, a Furret, had discovered a Dragon Scale and a Metal Coat from one of their recent adventures. Immediately after finding them, Natalya believed they were useless to them and immediately thought of the Poké money it would fetch for the two of them instead. However, Jess, never really liking to sell away her treasures, encouraged Natalya to keep her Metal Coat. In the end, the two of them hung onto them like good luck charms.

Two years later, the seemingly impossible happened. Jess had actually managed to evolve into a draconic evolution of Eevee, later called “Dracoeon,” through the prolonged exposure to the Dragon Scale. She had turned deep purple in color, now with two dragon wings, two dragon-like fins in the shape of dragon wings over her ears, and a spiked draconic tail. Almost immediately, Jess became a celebrity, having discovered a new way for Eevees to evolve. And then, not very long afterword, Natalya had evolved as well, becoming an evolution of Furret with a larger size and with metallic spines and armor over her fur, later called “Spurret.” After that, Jess and Natalya simply let the Meowth out of the bag and were pretty open when it came to revealing the secret. Several years later, the Nightjade Pokémon had discovered the advantage they were looking for. Many of them were able to evolve into new Pokémon, while the Urban Unity Pokémon were left envying this power. As expected, the Nightjade Pokémon had a much easier time obtaining the power, still able to find the stones and other evolutionary items, while the Urban Unity no longer had them as their urban cities covered the landscapes. Regardless, both sides, now even in strength, still kept their distance from each other, though the overconfidence of both sides was nipping at the nerves of the other.

However, one unintentional disaster of enormous proportions unleashed the tornado that would spark the war between the two factions.

One day, the Pokémon legendary known as Shaymin came across an incredible source of power and potential in her travels, a power known as the Indigo Corona. She had found the glowing twilight-colored sphere of light on a forgotten mountaintop, and curiosity had gotten the better of her, deciding to investigate the Indigo Corona instead of consulting the other legendaries about it. She approached it and then touched it, causing her body to become the adopter of an overwhelming amount of power, raising her potential and abilities to incalculable heights. Very quickly and very easily, it became far too much for her to control, so much so that it drove her mad. To avoid unintentionally hurting anyone with her new, uncontrollable power, she quickly burrowed and drove her way toward the center of Talandra’s core, now able to dig wildly through even solid rock. Meanwhile, even the magma and fire of Talandra’s core didn’t stop her in her mad rush. Finally, nearly bursting from the power of the Indigo Corona, she finally reached the center of Talandra’s core, finally as far away as she could get from the rest of the world.

However, even that wasn’t enough. Unable to contain the overwhelming power, she then burst into a massive flower that grew from the very center of Talandra upward. Very quickly and very swiftly, the root network of this massive flower grew so huge that it began using the entire world as a flower pot, growing wildly until it hit the surface. With the root system now entrenched throughout the world, massive and enormous flowers, along with thick flower beds, began to emerge on Talandra’s surface, growing even in deserts, mountains, frozen wastelands, swamps, and other places that would have never seen unnaturally colorful flowers like these.

The situation only grew worse, however. These new unusually colorful flowers, now called Shaymin Infection Flowers, caused Pokémon that came into contact with them to swiftly turn into grass types, suddenly finding themselves with leaves and flowers growing out of them as a result of touching or breathing in the “infective” pollen. These new grass type Pokémon also found themselves inheriting some of Shaymin’s abilities, such as the ability to purify air, as well as the unintentional spread of flowers around them. Now, many Pokémon suddenly believe these Shaymin Flower Infected Pokémon are spreading the infection even further, even though the flowers that are created by these new grass type Pokémon are harmless. However, not every Pokémon believes that…

In the meantime, the massive Shaymin Infection Flowers not only infect Pokémon, but they’ve ruined countless cities as well, especially within the Urban Unity. Many of these Pokémon discovered that many of their buildings, factories, roads, and innovations had been destroyed as these flowers tore through the asphalt and concrete. Immediately, many of the Urban Unity Pokémon suspected that the Nightjade Pokémon were responsible for these destructive flowers and the infection, believing they encouraged or enslaved Shaymin to unleash this catastrophe upon them in effort to destroy their technology and forcefully bring them back to nature. In their defense, the Nightjade Pokémon tried to convince the Pokémon of the Urban Unity that they had nothing to do with it, but the Urban Unity Pokémon didn’t believe them.

Now, the Urban Unity wants payback against the Nightjade Pokémon while the Pokémon of Nightjade are trying to defend themselves from their old enemies. Meanwhile, the Shaymin Flower Infected Pokémon are left in the loop, finding themselves being pursued by those wishing to eliminate them to stop the spread of the infection. What’s even worse is the arising of the Dark Lily faction… an entire faction of Shaymin Flower Infected Pokémon actually trying to spread the Shaymin Infection even further.

Life in Talandra will never be the same…

THE SHAYMIN FLOWER INFECTION

First and foremost, Pokémon that are already grass types can’t be infected by this. Meanwhile, Pokémon can still evolve even if they’re infected, but the infection remains in their new form.

Essentially, any Pokémon that has been afflicted with the Shaymin Flower Infection is now a grass type, which is either tacked onto the single type they have, or replaces one of the types they had (in the case of a dual type Pokémon). So a Ratatta would become a Normal/Grass type, while a Pidgey would become a Grass/Flying type. In terms of appearance, Pokémon that have been infected are now mainly green in color with leaves and flowers blossoming around them. Like Shaymin, if they stay still in a particular place for at least ten minutes, they cause flowers to bloom around them.

There are both advantages and disadvantages to this infection:

In terms of advantages, first and foremost, an infected Pokémon is obviously infected and can’t be any more infected regardless of how much more they linger around the Shaymin Flowers, giving them free range even in the “red zones.” In addition, infected Pokémon can use any grass-type move, and only need water to survive. Meanwhile, their lifespan has also been tripled (even though this may not be applicable when it comes to the RP) due to the purifying nature of the Shaymin abilities that have been granted to them. They also are resistant to poisonous gases and can even remove them. Finally, they have regenerative abilities, able to heal considerably faster than normal non-infected Pokémon.

The disadvantages are that many Pokémon are pursuing them to eliminate them. But, in the same scenario, an infected Pokémon can play off of this, using the phobia of their pursuers to scare them by coming close to them and threatening to infect them. Besides this, the infected share the same weaknesses as normal grass types, taking more damage from Fire, Ice, Poison, Flying, and Bug types. But they gain the same resistances as well against Water, Electric, Grass, and Ground types. In addition, Pokémon that are infected will need to drink water at least once every five posts, so navigating through a wasteland or desert might be dangerous if they don’t carry water with them (which shouldn’t be an infinite source by the way).

FACTIONS & CHARACTERISTICS

THE NIGHTJADE
Played by the Role Players of Pokémon Elite 2000

The Nightjade Faction, which are the main advocates for nature, generally live in caves, treetop villages, and the kinds of small towns made of mud, clay, and wood that are usually found in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games. Meanwhile, the main Nightjade alliance realizes that those affected by the Shaymin Flower Infection are not at fault. Even though they weren’t as badly affected as the Urban Unity, there are still a few Nightjade Pokémon with the affliction. The Nightjade are united in force, trying to protect themselves against the Urban Unity while protecting those that have been hit with the affliction.

Advanced Evolution: Only Pokémon within the Nightjade faction can have “Advanced Evolution” forms (fakemon evolutions that aren’t in the games), like the case of Jess the “Dracoeon” and Natalya the “Spurret.” In all cases of Pokémon, the Advanced Evolution form follows this pattern:

Single Stage Pokémon (Farfetch’d, Zangoose, etc.) – These Pokémon can now evolve, with their second stage being their Advanced Evolution form.

Double Stage Pokémon (Vulpix/Ninetales, Munchlax/Snorlax, etc.) – These Pokémon now have a third stage that is their Advanced Evolution form.

Triple Stage Pokémon (Charmander/Charmeleon/Charizard, etc.) – The Advanced Evolution form replaces the third stage. So a Pokémon in its second stage would have to decide to abandon their natural third stage to achieve Advanced Evolution.

These Advanced Evolutions also follow this pattern in relation to the evolution item held:

Fire Stone/Magmarizer – Evolve into a Fire type Pokémon
Thunder Stone/Electirizer – Evolve into an Electric type
Water Stone – Evolve into a Water type
Leaf Stone/Sun Stone – Evolve into a Grass type
Dragon Scale – Evolve into a Dragon type
Metal Coat – Evolve into a Steel type
Dusk Stone – Evolve into a Dark type
Reaper Cloth – Evolve into a Ghost type
Protector – Evolve into a Rock type

Other items, such as the Shiny Stone, Dawn Stone, and so on are left to the discretion of the RPer.

Pokémon in an “Advanced Evolution” stage do not have resistance to the Shaymin Flowers and are just as susceptible to infection as other Pokémon are. However, if an Advanced Evolution Pokémon gets infected, they are allowed to become a Pokémon with three types, where one of those three needs to be the Grass type. So for example, if you made a Dark type Advanced Evolution of Wartortle (to replace Blastoise) and he got infected, his types would be Dark/Water/Grass. This is the only situation where a three-type Pokémon can be possible.

Also, Pokémon characters of the Nightjade faction cannot use the technology of the Urban Unity. They don’t know how to work their guns, pilot their vehicles, and use their radios. If they found them and picked them up, it would confuse them if they attempted to make sense of it. Not to mention that they shouldn’t be out to use their technology anyway given the faction’s background.

THE NIGHTJADE TRAITORS (THE SHADOWVINE)
Played by NPCs

Like the original Nightjade faction they hide within, the Shadowvine share the same concern that they need to fight back against the Urban Unity. However, they disagree with the Nightjade for the cases involving the Pokémon affected by the Shaymin Flower Infection. They believe the infected are spreading around the affliction, and need to be eliminated before it consumes them all. They are also against the Nightjade faction for protecting the infected.

Like the Nightjade, some of them are new Advanced Evolutions as well.

THE URBAN UNITY
Played by the Role Players of Global Trade Station Plus

The Urban Unity is mainly an alliance of Pokémon that have learned to make machines, construct advanced buildings, have learned to forge metal, and have mastered the aspects of architecture, engineering, science, and technology. In terms of tech level, they have learned to make any type of technology from the era of World War II and earlier (no nukes, however). This includes motorized vehicles, automatic weapons (though they are not as lethal), airplanes, radios, phones, and so on. Meanwhile, their cities look very similar to towns and cities that were from the era of World War II. The Urban Unity dislikes the Nightjade Pokémon simply for the belief that they refuse to open their mind and embrace the possibilities.

With the current state of affairs, the Urban Unity believe the Nightjade Pokémon either convinced, forced, or tricked Shaymin to unleash the catastrophe of the infective flowers that have turned almost half of their population into grass types while gigantic flowers and rampant flowerbeds have overtaken several of their cities and devoured their roads and technology. They believe the Nightjade did this in an attempt to bring them back down to their level, something that has made the Urban Unity furious as years of work has been utterly destroyed. Regardless, the main Urban Unity faction believes the infected aren’t capable of spreading the disease, so they are willing to protect them.

Urban Unity Technology: – Because the Urban Unity has researched technology, your Pokémon character can be equipped with armor, have a weapon, and even a vehicle (note that because vehicles are WWII era, they’re quite easy to destroy considering the kinds of powers Pokémon have). Your character can also be a specialist and could also create armor, weapons, and vehicles.

Note that the tech level in this RP CAN NOT be advanced. You’re free to produce as many WWII or earlier era technology items as you like, but it may not go any further than that. Note that large machines or vehicles, such as battleships or Boeing B-17-like airplanes, should take time to construct. However, simple devices such as radios can be created in single posts.

Shaymin Flower Infection Aftermath: – About half of the Urban Unity was infected by the Shaymin Flower Infection. Because of this, at least half of the RPers signing up for the Urban Unity should be RPing infected characters. If too many people seem to be dodging this (as in less than only one infected character for every five Urban Unity characters), sign ups may be blocked until willing RPers sign up with infected characters.

Also, many areas within the territory that the Urban Unity controls have been labeled as “red zones,” areas that are overgrown with Shaymin Flowers (these will be highlighted on the map). There are some cities that are within these red zones, but as expected, many of them are in ruins and only Pokémon that have already been infected (or normal grass types) live in them. There is some possibility that lost technology could be salvaged from these sites, however.

THE URBAN UNITY TRAITORS (LOCKDOWN)
Played by NPCs

The traitors of the Urban Unity, known as Lockdown, agree that the Nightjade factions are to blame for the catastrophic Shaymin Flower Infection, and believe its payback time for what they did to their cities. However, unlike the main force of the Urban Unity, they believe the infected are a lost cause. Because of that, they believe the infected need to be put out of their misery, and the “red zones” need to be quarantined.

Like the Urban Unity, they too use technology, including armor, weapons, vehicles, and so on.

THE SHADOW LILY
Played by NPCs

Seemingly hated by all, The Shadow Lily faction is comprised entirely of Pokémon infected by the Shaymin Flower Infection. These Pokémon not only enjoy their new attributes, but are actually out to spread the Shaymin Flowers across the world in hopes to infect every last Pokémon on Talandra. Meanwhile, they practice strange voodoo-like black magic, using the eerie and enigmatic powers to ensnare, rapture, and curse those that oppose them.

MAP OF TALANDRA



Legend:

Nightjade Controlled Areas are locations with name labels marked in light green.
Urban Unity Controlled Areas are locations with name labels marked in light blue.
Dark Lily Controlled Areas are locations with name labels marked in pink.
Neutral Areas are locations with name labels marked in white (white).

Map Characteristics:
  • Large cities are resembled by large white dots with a large city label hovering above them. Smaller cities and towns are resembled by smaller white dots with a smaller city label hovering above them. Small villages are not indicated on the map, but this does not mean they don’t exist! Its up to the RPers to discover and define these villages if they come across them in their travels.
  • Any city location that has two dash marks around it (for example, --Graystone City--) indicates a city or town that has been overrun by the Shaymin Flower overgrowth. Cities under this condition are typically half-destroyed while the other half is surrounded and wrapped with the Shaymin Flowers.
  • The city and town possession indicated on the map is only reflective from the role play’s beginning. Its quite possible possession may change over time as control over certain cities is switched from one faction to the other depending on the outcomes of battles and so forth.

DEATH AND DYING

It IS possible to kill other RP characters, as well as be killed by them in this RP. HOWEVER, IT MUST BE DONE FAIRLY AND REALISTICALLY. If your character dies, that’s not necessarily the end for them.

When it comes to which of these two afterlife realms your character goes to, Murhe is the realm of the evil, and Sovinto is the realm of the good (FUN FACT: Murhe actually means woe and grief, while Sovinto means peace and reconciliation in Finnish). Depending on your character's personal alignment and their past actions, its up to you to decide where they go (i.e. you get to be St. Peter for a day). Obviously, a saint of a Pokémon wouldn't end up in Murhe, and a homicidal maniac wouldn't find themselves in Sovinto. Use your best judgment, but if you can't decide, flip a coin.

And some rules on killing other people’s characters:
  • YOU MUST GIVE THE CHARACTER YOU’RE ATTACKING A CHANCE TO RESPOND. There are absolutely NO one-hit kills when it comes to attacking and killing another person’s character.
  • Consider injuries as well. If your character is very critically wounded, keep in mind that they won’t be fighting at anything close to full strength, and that further injury should result in death. As far as inflicting injuries to others, start small and work your way up toward graver injuries if the battle continues on. As long as they are fair and are realistically inflicted, there's no problem.
  • Upon revival, Pokémon that were infected by the Shaymin flowers are cured.
AFTERLIFE

MURHE



Murhe is essentially Hell for Pokémon, where those that have sinned and have done horrible crimes against their fellow Pokémon are condemned.

Grindscape – A typical wasteland, Grindscape isn’t so much as painful as it is extremely boring. The land is very prone to earthquakes, which may seem shocking at first until those who stay in Grindscape quickly get used to them, and realize it’s impossible to do anything with the terrain always shaking and rumbling. Also, nothing grows in Grindscape either, and generally, only the mad wish to permanently live there.

Shatterlands – As a nearby neighbor to Grindscape, most of the Shatterlands is cracked and broken, very much like an arid, dark desert. However, the worst part of the Shatterlands is the hideous and ear-splitting noise. Loud, hideous grinding sounds make it impossible to speak or even think straight. Meanwhile, those that live here are either deaf or are too senile to even notice the sounds in the first place.

The Abysmal Strand – As a twisting, horribly-shaped area, the Abysmal Strand’s pain and frustration is its horrible smell. Those who don’t live in the Abysmal Strand are always nauseous and feel the need to throw up every pressing, foul-smelling second. Also, it is impossible to eat anything and keep it down. Most Pokémon undergo the same pain of constantly feeling the need to vomit, even poison-types. The smells are also from noxious gasses that result in hideous and disgusting diseases, which induce even more nausea and violent vomiting.

Sunken Hills – Considered to be an upside-down land, the Sunken Hills are the home of the completely insane and psychotic. While the landscape looks and feels like a mountain range in reverse, most of the land consists of sunken pits and canyons. As for the Pokémon, they are either completely mad, are total idiots, or are insanely homicidal. Those who live here end up learning a new language only they can speak, and as everyone tries to speak their own language to everyone else, random body language becomes the only real form of communication. Also, everyone seems to want to go somewhere, but they don’t know where to end up going.

Reject City – Reject City actually looks and feels like a normal modern day city at first. However, upon closer inspection, the City is completely overstuffed with Pokémon who are too impatient and still believe they need to work 80 hour work weeks to keep living. Most people in the city either have very dirty jobs, or boring office jobs that never change day by day. Meanwhile, the frustrations of every day life are multiplied many times. To everyone, work hours go slower, and hours of leisure are over in mere seconds. All coffee is decaf, all the cars are the same, all the televisions are stuck on the same news channel, and the weather is always the same: a cloudless sky with no sun. Here, people know what time it is, but the actual date is never mentioned. In fact, calendars completely stop existing in Reject City. There are many in Reject City that even deny they are dead. Pokémon from the Urban Unity may find themselves sunken into the trap, but those from Nightjade would be so bewildered that they wouldn’t know what to do with themselves.

Weaponblood – While most of Murhe is psychologically horrific, Weaponblood is the exception. Those who come to Weaponblood get caught up in the desire to endlessly kill or be killed. Always a bloody warzone, fighting and combat never stop and never know rest in this area. Like a twisted video game, those who are “killed” simply respawn so they can kill or be killed again. Weapons like knives and firearms are also respawned so the fighting never stops and so everyone involved with the endless carnage always has something to fight with. As a result, the lands are totally saturated with blood, bullets, broken weapons, bodies and body parts, and the like.

Gluttony’s Playground – Probably one of the most disturbing areas, those that come and live in Gluttony’s Playground are absolutely obsessed with eating. Pokémon are given infinite food to binge on, inflating them up like monstrous balloons as they become completely unaware of what their intake is doing to them. However, the fatter they become, the more their bodies evolve to meet the endless intake, often eliminating needless bones, organs, and appendages such as feet and legs that become useless once they’re too fat to walk. Shortly after, their own blood becomes fatty oil and fat-producing organs begin to grow in their massive bodies.

Firesplatter – Murhe’s star hellhole is Firesplatter. The temperature is always 650 degrees Fahrenheit, but somehow Pokémon can tolerate the heat, albeit not ever well. However, fire Pokémon would actually enjoy this place if it wasn’t so horribly boring. The food here is always burnt, and the heat often drives those that hate it into absolute madness. Also, all Pokémon that live here now have red and black skin, which isn’t painful now that they’ve gotten used to the burns, but it still looks horrendously ugly. Pokémon also start losing their fur and feathers, become very shriveled up, and look terribly ugly.

The Grim Void – Everything in the Grim Void looks horrible, smells horrible, tastes horrible, feels horrible, and sounds horrible. The main objective of the Grim Void is to harass and frustrate as many Pokémon senses as possible at all the same time. For example, a dinner may look like a dead, black roach that smells like manure. When attempting to eat it or touch it, it will feel like broken glass and make a horrible screeching sound during that time. Meanwhile, all things in the Grim Void are like this, defying logic and knowledge to create the most absolute abysmal place to be.

Escaping from Murhe

Knowing you wouldn’t want to be stuck here the entire RP, there are ways to get out. How exactly you find them is up to you, but it should involve seeing at least two of the different areas, and spending at least five posts in each of them (total of 10). What exactly you do to get out is up to your own ideas, but you should still need to work at it. For example, someone who can provide escape may want you to do them a service that requires travel to certain locations. Or you may find a piece of a one-time-use artifact that could bring you out of Murhe, but requires assembly and the pieces are scattered around.

Once you come back to life, you appear back in Talandra normally again, but it needs to be in areas that your team controls. You can’t reappear in an enemy territory.

SOVINTO



Sovinto is considered to be the Heaven for Pokémon. If your character is good-aligned and is killed during the course of the RP, you’ll find yourself here.

The Emerald Islands – The main feature of the Emerald Islands is its rich vegetation and its incredibly beautiful flowers and foliage. No flower or tree ever wilts here, and it provides a fantastic place to rest and reside in. This is pretty much the maximum amount of paradise a grass-type Pokémon will ever hope to experience. Meanwhile, the area is also known for its pleasant and windy shores, creating a refreshing and sweet-smelling breeze that entices the senses.

The Horizon Crescent – The Horizon Crescent is like one giant sunny beach that’s always just the right temperature. Pleasant breezes make sure this permanent vacation spot never gets too hot, but allows it to stay bright and sunny all day long. The sand is always soft, doesn’t stick like glue even after being in the water, and Pokémon can drink the ocean’s water with comparable refreshment to sweet-tasting flavored bottled water.

Midnight Passion Isles – Starry skies, neon lights and terrific nightlife await in the Midnight Passion Isles, where its like a night out in Vegas without the extreme expense. The drinks are always sweet, the desserts are flavorful and pack as much calories and fat grams as a bottle of water, and the games and excitement are fun, fresh, and can be enjoyed by everyone and anyone. And every once in a while, people break out in song everyone already knows the words and beat to, like it’s the best musical ever performed and everyone gets to be a part of it.

The Sunrise Coast – Renown for its incredible sunrises and sunsets, the Sunrise Coast offers the best place to simply relax, rest, and offer refreshment. Featuring many similar beaches like what the Horizon Crescent offers, the stars are still visible even in the afternoon sky. Offering a warm tranquility, the Sunrise Coast is also known for its serene and quiet plains.

The Aurora Fields – The rolling, beautifully colored plains of the Aurora Fields offer both fantastic views and sights for both those looking upon the ground and the sky. In the endlessly starry expanse of the sky, bright, rainbow-colored auroras shine and wave in the sky with beautiful color schemes never imagined before. These same plains offer reassuring therapy for those that led painful and tragic lives before death.

Wintersong Plains – Blessed with the beauty and color of winter without the harsh, bitter cold, the Wintersong Plains is always like a bright January morning, where the snow is soft and easy to shape, while all of the trees are covered with a glass-like ice that easily refracts light and creates rainbows like a prism. Endless skiing and snowboarding without the risk of pain and injury are a main highlight here, along with refreshing winter sights.

Gemlight Islands – Like a sea of precious gems and stones, the cities and roads are literally made of rubies, topazes, emeralds, sapphires, diamonds, garnets, pearls, amethysts, and millions of other kinds of gems both seen and unseen before. Meanwhile, these islands are full of color and enjoyment, and the jewelry is unlike anything in Talandra and is incredibly easy to create without any tools.

Lovefire Peninsula – The Lovefire Peninsula is the home of lovers who have wed for life, and always wish to remain together for all eternity. Here, the sights and the sounds are always romantic, lovely, and encourage passionate relationships between love-connected couples.

Corona Islands – The Corona Islands are known as the “Islands of Light” due to them being the brightest locations in Sovinto. Despite how bright the light is, all eyes can look into it without squinting or shielding. Meanwhile, bright, colorful and harmless fires dance in the sky, creating magnificent lights and shapes that never cease to amaze.

Escaping from Sovinto

Despite the fact Sovinto is the best eternal dream possible in the RP, I know you want to get back to the fight. There are ways to leave Sovinto, but there’s more to that then what meets the eyes.

Leaving Sovinto means trying to resist the temptations to stay there and forget about the wars, which should be difficult for your character to consider doing. Also, in order to leave, like Murhe, some objectives need to be accomplished. Two different locations (5 posts in each for a total of 10) must be visited in a self-assigned mission, which may be trying to look for a hidden portal, helping someone who can help you find your way back, or assembling a one-time-use artifact that can take you back to the world of the living.

Once you come back to life, you appear back in Talandra normally again, but it needs to be in areas that your team controls. You can’t reappear in an enemy team’s base.

RULES:

NOTE: Several of these rules have been adopted as PE2K role-playing standard. Most PE2K role players will understand them, and I’ll try to make these as clear as I can for GTS role players who may be unfamiliar with these. If you have questions about these, please ask.

The RP Post Header

On the top of each RP post should be a header indicating your character’s name and species, their faction, and their current location. It should look something like this:

Desh the Farfetch’d (Name of character & Pokémon species)
Urban Unity (Faction)
Center Lake City, Victakan (Location: city and continent)

This may sound like a hassle at first, but trust me, it is a MAJOR HELP when it comes to finding who your allies and enemies are, what Pokémon their characters are and what their names are (which will save you from having to go back to the sign up thread and look for their sign up again), and where to find them so that you can interact with them and they can interact with you. Also, if your character is in the same location as other people’s characters, this will be a much quicker alert to that fact rather than having to deeply read into all the intricate details in their posts, which would eat a lot of time and slow the RP down. With this, if you see they’re in the same location as you, it will be a much faster alert for you to be on the lookout for possible interactions that their character may be trying to use with your character, such as conversation, attacking, and so on.

The Traveling Rule

When moving from one location to another, the journey should take AT LEAST three posts. It should work in a fashion similar to this:

Post #1 – “The Departure Post.” The character finishes their business in their current location, and ends the post with them leaving, bound for their next intended destination. For example, let’s say Desh the Farfetch’d decides to leave Center Lake City after buying a few items in town. The last details in the “Departure Post” would be the details of him leaving the town and going beyond the city limits.

Header example:

Desh the Farfetch’d
Urban Unity
Center Lake City, Victakan

Post #2 – “The En Route Post.” The second post in the character’s travel should cover the journey that the character undertakes to reach their new destination. Let’s say Desh is flying to the town of Vora. His En Route post should cover what things he sees and experiences on his way to that location. For example, during Desh’s flight, he may reflect on the things he sees as he flies over the Victankan Plains on the way to Vora. Its also possible his travel may be interrupted by an enemy character. Note that distance does not matter for this rule, but a larger “en route” post should be in order if the travel is very long, such as if Desh was flying from Center Lake City all the way to Houan Peak in southern Azmarax. Also, the form of transportation does not matter in terms of how long it takes to reach new locations, but logically speaking, a character would have to use a ship or a flying or a water Pokémon to cross bodies of water. Also, it can be assumed that roads and highways connect cities and towns to each other. In towns owned by the Urban Unity, roads are made of asphalt and are paved, while for the Nightjade towns, roads are made of dirt and cobblestone.

Header example:

Desh the Farfetch’d
Urban Unity
En Route to Vora, Victakan

Post #3 – “The Arrival Post.” The third post in the character’s travel marks the end of the travel, where the character finally arrives at their intended destination. So after flying over the Victankan Plains, Desh finally arrives in the town of Vora.

Header example:

Desh the Farfetch’d
Urban Unity
Vora, Victakan


Other Rules
  • Please, no god-modding (obtaining unstoppable levels of power or luck and/or general abuse of the context/content of the RP) or bunnying (controlling other people’s characters without their consent). These two are a plague to role playing, please try to avoid them and be fair.
  • Please, no spamming or flaming. Also, respect your fellow RPers, both the ones on your side and the ones on the opposing forum’s team. If you have an issue or conflict that you want to see resolved, please be courteous about it.
  • Role Play posts should have correct spelling and grammar. If you’re unsure, type them in a word processor such as Microsoft Word or OpenOffice (which is free). These will allow you to spell check and grammar check your post before submitting it.
  • Limit Out of Character (OOC) chat within the RP itself (a quick heads up sentence or two is fine, but if there’s a issue you want to bring up that’s going to be at least a paragraph long, consider using the discussion thread. Also, don’t make posts in the RP thread just for out of character discussion.
  • Role play posts should be AT LEAST a paragraph long, though it is generally encouraged to go beyond that.

THE SIGN UP

And finally, the stuff you’ve been waiting for.

Name: (Your character’s name. Last names are optional.)
Gender: (Male, female, or genderless.)
Age: (Age in years. Assume that Pokémon live as long as humans do and age at the same rate.)
Species: (What Pokémon your character is, but no legendaries. If you’re on the Nightjade side and you’re RPing an Advanced Evolution Pokémon, explain what evolution line they’re a part of. For example, like in the storyline, Natalya the “Spurret” would indicate: Sentret > Furret> Spurret: Normal/Steel. Characters that are infected by the Shaymin Flower Infection should also indicate this here.)

Description: (Your character’s physical appearance. Pictures are greatly welcomed for supplement but should not be a substitution for worded description (and if someone else made the picture, please give them credit). This should be at least a paragraph long.)
Personality: (Your character’s mental state and emotional intelligence. This should also be at least a paragraph long.)
Background: (Your character’s history and background prior to the events of the RP. This should be at least two paragraphs long).
Other: (Any other details about your character, such as what weapons they may be carrying, what vehicles they may have in their possession, close NPC companions that may accompany them, and so on.)


And with all that said, welcome to the first ever Dual Forum Team RP between Global Trade Station Plus and Pokémon Elite 2000. Good luck to everyone and most importantly, have a good time. happy.gif

Name: Tony
Gender: Male
Age: 22
Species: Blaziken
Faction: Urban Unity

Description: Tony looks like a normal Blaziken but stands about a shoulder taller than most. The normal flames that a Blaziken would have are a lot stronger on him as well.

Personality: Tony is one of the smartest Blazikens ever to have completed a career in the motor industry. His knowledge on everything with wheels and tracks is unmatched by anyone, as such, he is one of the most in demand mechanics in the region.

Background: As a Torchic, Tony had always been fascinated by anything with an engine so it was only natural he would enter a career as a mechanic. During his spare time he would watch his father tinkering with many different vehicles and when he evolved into a Combusken he would continually help his father and learn whatever he could about vehicles. He left secondary school with a whole host of qualifications before going to University and getting a degree in mechanical engineering. After that we worked with a relatively unknown company which he would eventually own at age 20. His company now has subsidiaries in the military as well as the civilian sector, whilst he exclusively works on civilian cars. On the days he wasn't at school or working, Tony would practice his fire type moves and thus was able to learn flamethrower at an early age. By the time of his evolution into a Blaziken, Tony had mastered some of the more complex fire type moves such as overheat and Fire punch. Upon his evolution he learned how to use Blaze Kick and began researching some more powerful fire type moves. By age 19 he had mastered Fire Blast and Heat Wave and had begun to learn the most powerful fire type move; Blast Burn. During his training he accidentaly unlocked the power to use Flare Blitz. He rarely uses this move due to the damage he inflicts on himself when using it. Finally at age 21 he learned how to use Blast Burn. So far he has kept the knowledge on how to use it to himself but is willing to teach should the appropriate student come forth.

Other: He always wears a belt that contains all the tools he needs. He drives an open top Jeep that is fully equipped to work on any vehicle he comes across. Also has an apprentice called Mike (A Monferno) who travels around with him.

Name: Hirome
Gender: Male
Age: 23
Species: Salamence

Description: http://iaza.com/work/100831C/Hirome79167.pngThe black lines are claw marks from a Persian, causing him to limp. Nothing else out of the ordinary.
Personality: Quiet, only actually talks to his crew and boss. When approaching an enemy, he will normally sneak up on them. In the air though, he is overconfident, and believes that nothing can stop him. He has a secret cave in the Maastrak Mountains.
Background: Coming from a famous and prestigious family, he has access to pretty much any weapons, vehicles and pretty much anything the Urban Unity can dish out.
Sadly, his parents died when he was young by an attack by NightJade criminals. While Hirome detests NightJades now, hence the Seekers, he understands that the NightJade members were criminal, but, being brought up in a "electronic" community, he couldn't understand why the Nightjade community police force was so, well, incompetent.
Other: He rums a fleet of six Seekers that technically are on the Urban Unity side, but also will work for pretty much anyone, if the need arises. they use Spotter Planes, radar and radio.

GTS Clan for me. Duh.

My Dream Team



Name: Eclipse
Gender: Female
Age: 12
Species: Infected Umbreon
Faction: Urban Unity
Description: Eclipse is currently a green umbreon with pink rings. She has a flower by her right ear and back leg. Unlike other Umbreons, she has blue eyes. She also wears a pink necklace.
Personality: Eclipse is a child at heart and is always curious about how things work. She enjoys tinkering around with things by taking things apart and putting them together again. Whenever she sees something new, she likes to observe and play around with it. Eclipse is also the best in her class. She is very brave, kind, and can do anything she puts her mind to. She is not afraid to give her opinion. She is usually calm and open-minded, but you're in trouble if she gets mad.
Background: Eclipse has always wanted to be a designer. When she was really little, she'd always make paintings and come up with tons of new ideas. Whenever she had the chance, she'd go to the store and pick up materials for her own inventions. The place you'd most likely see her back then was in her room working with different materials or exploring. She has been spending most of her time seeing how things work and how to make them better. She has currently been going to two different schools for years; one involving the arts and the other, of course, technology. She is in advanced classes and will be skipping a few grades. (She's in 8th grade) She has been known to carry around a sketchbook and pen at all times. She is also given the nickname "Penny" because of her love of designing.
Other: Is curious about the Nightjade. She does not yet fully understand why both sides are opposed, but knows enough not to ask or go near them.

Wolfe



Name: Ark
Gender: Male
Age: 25
Species: Houndoom

Description: Ark is a normal looking houndoom, but the ony difference between him and others of his kind is that his 'bracelets' on his front legs are a copper color. The bracelets don't do anything other than look pretty.

Personality: Ark is not the brightest in the bunch. he is rather slow at understanding certain things, but once he understands it, he knows it. His stupidity can get annoying for others, but sometimes he's only pretending to be stupid to show off what he knows when they get to something he really understands. Other than that, he is mostly happy, but can get angry very easily. And when he is angry, you do not so something to annoy him, or you will get flamethrowered. He is very curious, and will take things apart and put them back together if he can figure out how. Paws are not hindering him at all with his facination in anything.

Background: Ark was once a happy little puppy, running around and looking adorable, until he was bullied by others for having different colored 'bracelets'. He really didn't understand why he ws getting bullied, just that he was. He then was determined to best the bullies at something, and did he ever. He knows more about land vehicles and planes than they ever will. He eventually gathered some other information on random things, and he keeps them in files in a box that is always with him wherever he goes.

Other: You know that box full of files? Well that is in a jeep that he somehow drives. He also has a couple friends that accompany him. They drive three jeeps, two people in every one. There are six of them, including Ark.

Faction: Urban Unity (GPX+!!!)

Name: Melynx
Gender: Male
Age: 21
Species: Meowth
Faction: Urban Unity

Description:

Melynx looks like any ordinary Meowth, except in coloration. Instead of the beautiful beige fur that covers most Meowth since birth Melynx' coat is a pure black coal with ghostly white paw tips and whiskers. His two gold eyes shine when any kind of light is reflected upon them which can give an efficient way to find the feline for a few moments before he flees. Melynx can also be distinguished by his black fedora-like hat and has an habit of adjusting it when first introducing himself to someone.
Background: Melynx always had a rough life, being bullied as a child for his different than usual fur. This lead him into learning various self-defense techniques such as Double Team and Protect. Despite this he managed to find the love of his life and live happily until this one day when she got murdered right in front of his eyes by one of those things people called "Advanced Evolutions", characteristic of the so-called Nightjade. He remained hidden in the dark, remembering the creature that marked his life, and waiting for a second chance.
He turned into an assassin, a well known one across the land and his name stroke fear into anyone who hears it and knows about his acts. Swift as a leaf in the Autumn breeze and quick as an arrow he stole the life of those who for him were meaningless or guilty of some crime. Even though he's an assassin he still has his honor and pride typical to the species.
Personality: Because of his traumatic past he doesn't trust anyone, much less care about them. The accident turned his heart into stone and he lost the ability to love anyone again, blaming it all on the Nightjade people. He constantly seeks for the killer, even though he has no idea how it looks or what it is and if the opportunity strikes he will assassinate it. His pride is extremely important to him as it is his honor and so he won't kill anyone without a meaning. Even though he's on the same side as the Urban Unity he prefers to fight alone and will not hesitate to hurt or even kill anyone in his own faction, saying he's a one man army. Despise this he knows his weaknesses and will not hesitate to accept help if the situation calls for it.
Unlike most, however, he doesn't fear the Infected ones and he isn't afraid to get infected himself because, like he says "A man who lost everything doesn't need to fear the unknown".
Other: Melynx uses a combination of Double Team and Fury Swipes to create his own battalion, even though the copies are weak compared to himself. He also only strikes at night, using his black fur as a cover in the dark sky. He knows how to hijack a vehicle and to use it but he prefers to run across the rooftops to his destination within a city, other than that he'll only use a vehicle to cross water bodies, being a cat and all.


I changed the Personality and Background sections' place so that the Personality one would make more sense after reading the Background. The sprite lacks an hat because I was feeling lazy but imagine this but black without that stripe.

Cast of SPM! (evil)



Name: Dist
Gender: Male
Age: 18
Species: Absol
Description: Looks almost like every one of the mill Absol, only more serious and determined. He has seen alot, and has given him the look of an Adult. He has a Scar going down on his left eye from a battle long ago. his fur is slightly tented black in some part, and his claws are slightly sharper than most.

Made By Princess Tikal
Faction:Urban Unity
Personality: Distant and serious, Dist likes to go straight to the point. This makes him look rude from a distance, but that is usually because of his current situation. If you do go up to talk to him however, he will slowly but surely open up to you. He keeps his friends close, and if it came to save himself or his friends, he would choose friends.

Background: Dist was born and raised in Vora, a seaside city in which he lived with his best friend Leo. Dist and Leo were Childhood friends, and often hung out together after school and battled constantly. During the first couple years of his life, Dist was fascinated by the technology that was available in the Urban Unity, while Leo was more into Nature and the Nightjade. "Someday, if i were to go to Nightjade, I would want to be a grass Type." Leo said one day. Dist however, said that would be fools errand, and started a small rivalry between them.Thats when the event happened.

While Leo was on a trip to Centrael, the town was over run with flowers. Dist became throughly worried, hoping that he was okay. One day, Leo did return, but he was very different. his fur was grassy green, his arrow Dirty brown. and his tail was made of leaves, like a leafeon. On the arrow on his head grew a small green flower. Leo was infected. While Dist avoided him at first, although They still kept in touch. Finally, after a year of avoiding, Dist finally met up with Leo. Leo's flower was Orange now, brimming in the sun as the two friends finally met. Leo told him about how he was coping with the incident and his constant need for water. Surprisingly, Leo loved this transformation, except for being outcast from everywhere else. But only one thing truly disturbed him: the Shadowlily. "They use there powers to spread the infection further"Leo said."They are evil, demented group. that have to be stopped." And so Dist looks for a way to Stop the true threat, the Shadow Lily, and Cure The involuntary pokemon.
Other: Leo, the infected Linoone, goes wherever Dist goes(Except work). Dist carries a Claw Gauntlets for weapons and a canteen for Leo. Whenever Dist goes into a city or meets a pokemon, Leo quickly dives underground, leaving his emotion color changing flower above the ground.Dist has some knowledge in creating weapons and small technological stuff while Leo has knowledge for Herbs and plants. Some of Dist's friends may also pop up, namely Tager the Magmortar and Pulse the rotom

Name: Leo
Gender: Male
Age: 17
Species: Infected Linoone
Description:
Being infected makes him different from everyone else, obviously.His fur is green as grass and his arrow turned to the color of Rich soil.On top of his head is a small flower that changes color with emotions
Personality: Unlike his friend, Leo is the carefree addition to the duo. true to his species's nature, he is curious and eager to explore. He smile often and loves jokes, and , on occasions, plays pranks.(Not on Dist.)apparently, even in a fight, he can'take things seriously.
Background:Dist was born and raised in Vora, a seaside city in which he lived with his best friend Leo. Dist and Leo were Childhood friends, and often hung out together after school and battled constantly. During the first couple years of his life, Dist was fascinated by the technology that was available in the Urban Unity, while Leo was more into Nature and the Nightjade. "Someday, if i were to go to Nightjade, I would want to be a grass Type." Leo said one day. Dist however, said that would be fools errand, and started a small rivalry between them.Thats when the event happened.

While Leo was on a trip to Centrael, the town was over run with flowers. As soon as the city was over come, all technology there was halted. so Leo started home on his own, to get away from the infection. However, a small seed fell into his fur....

One day, Leo did return, but he was very different. his fur was grassy green, his arrow Dirty brown. and his tail was made of leaves, like a leafeon. On the arrow on his head grew a small green flower. Leo was infected.Dist refused to to meet Leo directly for a year before he finally convinced Dist otherwise. In that time he learned to use his new and unnatural(or natural) power. He also realized that the flower on changed with his emotions, and affect, his power in a way he could not yet figure out. Leo told him about how he was coping with the incident and his constant need for water. Surprisingly, Leo loved this transformation, except for being outcast from everywhere else. But only one thing truly disturbed him: the Shadowlily. "They use there powers to spread the infection further"Leo said."They are evil, demented group. that have to be stopped." And so Dist and Leo looks for a way to Stop the true threat, the Shadow Lily, and Cure The involuntary pokemon.

Other: none

Assassin Team



Name: Cid
Gender: Male
Age: 29
Species: Blaziken
Faction: Urban Unity
Description:
Cid is a normal Blaziken, though he wears a sky blue jacket with the sleeves rolled up to protect them from the fires that burst forth from his knuckled when he fights. The pockets of this jacket always appear to be filled to bursting with some sort of tool. Along with this, he wears a pair of welder's goggles to protect his eyes during work.
Personality: Cid treats the world as one big game, and he plans to win it. He is headstrong, and quick to rush into anything the deems challenging. However, he doesn't expect the same attitude from his comrades, and refuses to endanger any of their lives. Despite his attitude, he can take things seriously when the need arises.
Background: A master mechanic, with most of his expertise in the aeronautics field, with some experience with weapons manufacturing as well. Currently, he is the Captain and Chief Mechanic of the zeppelin called Zephyr, an airship he designed himself, with some help from Flying Type Pokemon. Before this, he was, and still is, the head mechanic of the Red Shield Gang, a band of Renegade Pokemon that took him in after his aimless wanderings.

Cid first showed interest in the Aeronautics when he was still a Torchic. Even at that young age he cursed the fact that his wings couldn't take him into the air. As soon as he evolved into Combusken and could make full use of his arms and talons, he immediately began studying into mechanics, hoping to one day be able to build something to take him into the air. For some time he tested out experiments with both fixed-wing and rotor aircraft, which failed miserably. By the time he was in his early twenties, he had turned to blimps. By the time he had evolved into a Blaziken, he had designed a small working blimp, capable of taking small Pokemon on a ride around him hometown. However, his expenses finally caught up with him, and he was forced to flee town to escape imprisonment.

After several months of wandering, he was picked up by members of the Red Shield Gang. Thrilled with with the chance to build once again, the Blaziken eagerly accepted their offer to join. Finally, two years later, he was able to develop a working Zeppelin, which he dubbed "Zephyr". Now with full access to the air, and his lifelong dream fulfilled, the Blaziken took to the skies along with his Red Shield comrades, using the Zypher as an easy way to get from place to place.
Other: Cid travels with a large group of Pokemon who all help keep the Zypher in working order. However, to avoid overcrowding issues, the characterss will primarily be kept down to three main companions. These are: Red Shield second-in-command Seth (Buizel, age 17), and Cid's apprentices Andre (Linoone, age 15), and Wesley (Furret, age 14).

Name: Seth
Gender: Male
Age: 17
Species: Buizel
Faction: Urban Unity
Description: or
Sorry, it's a bit large. (click to show)

Seth is a normal Buizel, abet with a bit of an abnormal appearance. He lost his Species' trademark flotation sac in a fight with a Scizor several years ago, and was lucky to escape a full decapitation. Since then, he has taken to wearing a black bandanna over his neck where ever he goes to hide the scar tissue. Partially hidden under his hat are a pair of goggles given to him by a friend long since past. Finally, he has taken to wearing a pair of pants, something some of the younger Red Shield members have started to emulate him for.
Personality: While definitely sane, Seth's current mental state is quite fragile. In truth, he loves to see pain inflicted on others, and is very sarcastic, mean, and loves to run things with an iron fist. Currently he is kept in check by his brother and leader, Nick. Forced out of his natural attitude, he acts very depressed and slightly indifferent to the plights of others. This occasionally escalates to the point where he simply does not care for anything else, and is ready to leave them to their dooms on a moments notice should something more interesting pop up. This of course badly strains the relationship he has with his underlings, and it is only Nick and a few key friends that continue to work towards his continued stay in the Red Shield.
Background: Seth never had a family of his own species. Instead, he was adopted straight from the egg by a family of Typhlosions. They had had a young son of their own recently, a Cyndaquil named Nicholas, and had agreed that a little brother would be perfect for him. For a long time, Seth grew up fairly normally, acting as one might expect a small child to. However, that changed one day when he met a young Scyther named Seifer. The two quickly became friends, and the Scyther proved to be a bad influence on the Buizel. After exploring a place that both of them knew they shouldn't, the Scyther found a Metal Coat, and quickly evolved into a Scizor. However, their actions were incredibly frowned upon by the leaders of their town, and Seifer was banished. Before he left, the Scizor gave the Buizel his favorite pair of goggles, and promised that they would always be friends.

Years later, Seifer came back, leading a horde of dangerous Pokemon. Now too old to resist, the leaders were slaughtered by the Scizor's army, along with the entire town, leaving only three survivors, Seth, Nick, and a close friend of theirs, Vincent. Deciding he wanted to find answers to why his friend could do such horrible things, Seth agreed to aid in the creation of the Red Shield Gang, becoming Second-in-Command. They chased the Scizor for some time. gaining new members along the way. One day, finally, they caught up to Seifer, and a fight broke out. The Scizor attempted to strangle Seth, and would have succeeded, if Nick hadn't intervened, burning the Scizor's left arm to a charred husk of its former self.

His arm destroyed beyond all hope of repair, Seifer and his horde fled. However, the damage he left on Seth was permanent, destroying the Buizel's flotation sac. The damage was far worse on a mental level however, seeing his best friend kill the only people he had known as parents, and then turn around and try to do the same to him, proved too much for him to handle. Seth snapped, becoming a very dangerous and unpredictable Pokemon. Eventually, the gang caught up to the Scizor again, finishing the job and killing him. Once again, the event took its tole on Seth's mind, though this time he mellowed out, creating a fragile reprieve for his Red Shield comrades.
Other: Carries a Stiletto Switchblade hidden in his hat, and is quite good at using it.

Name: Andre
Gender: Male
Age: 15
Species: Linoone
Faction: Urban Unity
Description:
Andre is a primarily normal Linoone. However, his right eye is brown, like a Shiny Linoone's would be. His coloration otherwise is normal. He has taken to bandaging his waist, and has found a pair of pants for himself to wear.
Personality: A more serious Pokemon then his close friend Wesley, Andre still has quite the sense of humor, and has a happy-go-lucky personality. He has little patience, though is willing to at least try anything that interests him. He is also incredibly loyal, doing as is asked of him by his superiors without question. He is prone to rushing, and commonly becomes so focused on a task that he blocks everything else out.
Background: Andre lead a very quiet life before Red Shield. He grew up in one of the smaller cities, with a loving family. The city life suited him, though he quickly found himself bored. At the age of 13, he evolved, first developing his eye discoloration. But now the fast paced city was falling behind, and Andre quickly found that the city was in fact too slow for him. Deciding that life would be better if he found a bigger city, Andre left home, never to return.

Several months into his travels, Andre encountered the Red Shield. Attracted by the Gang's quick movements and fast-paced lifestyle, Andre signed up. The gang, while adverse to involving people too young, agreed that his speed would be useful, and allowed him to join, having him work as a scout. At 13, he was the youngest person ever to join the gang. He quickly became a close friend of Seth's commonly reporting directly to the Buizel with the results of his scout runs. Two years after he joined, Red Shield defeated and killed Seifer the Scizor, and life for Andre once again slowed down.

The Linoone became fast friends with another new recruit, a Furret named Wesley. The Furret took the place of the younger brother Andre never had. The two eventually were approached by Cid, who offered to teach them how to work mechanics in exchange for their help with his work. Wesley eagerly agreed, and Andre followed suit, becoming Cid's two apprentices. Thanks to the Zephyr, Andre's life once again has started to speed up, and shows no sign of slowing again.
Other: None.

Name: Wesley
Gender: Male
Age: 14
Species: Furret
Faction: Urban Unity
Description:
Wesley is a young Furret. He is completely normal for his species. However, he wears a dark gray vest.
Personality: A happy-go-lucky Pokemon, Wes is a bit of a slacker. Unlike his high-strung friend, Andre, Wes enjoys taking things slowly. He is a lot less serious then Andre, though infinitely more patient. However, he is loyal to his friends, following them without question.
Background: Wesley comes from a large family, who all lived in a small town. Unlike the rest of his siblings, he was always very adventurous, and commonly got himself in trouble. As soon as he evolved, he left home, hoping to become an explorer. However, this life wasn't as easy as he had hoped, and he quickly found himself out of money. The Furret had no choice but to steal what he could to survive, making a living for himself in one of the larger cities.

One day, the Red Shield Gang arrived at the city. The Furret had heard many things about the gang, and sought them out and attempted to join. Thinking that his thieving skills could be of some use, the gang allowed him to join. Wes quickly became friends with Andre the Linoone, who thought of him as a younger brother. Cid later approached the two of them, offering positions as his Apprentices. Wesley quickly agreed, with Andre eventually following suit. When the Zephyr was completed, they became its secondary mechanics, a position Wesley very much loves.
Other: None.

My SS team



Name: Rose
Gender: female
Age: 14
Species: Shaymin Flower Infected Vulpix from the evolution line of; Vulpix > Ninetales > Infected Vulpix: Grass/Fire
Faction: Urban Unity

Description: Rose has the normal appearance of a vulpix, but she is green instead of red due to the shaymin flower infection and her eyes are light blue. Most of her fur is light green, her tails and head fur being slight darker and her paws being a very dark green. She is rather big for a Vulpix, but only because she exercises a lot and drink s a lot of water. She has a pink water bottle strapped onto her shoulder, leaving the bottle hanging right next to her hips.

Rose has a yellow shirt with small flame designs on it, which reach to about half her stomach. The shirt has small sleeves that cover her shoulder and a little bit of her arm. Over her shirt she wears a black jacket that has pockets on the inside. She uses the pockets to store her knives and a few guns she has.

She also wears a red skirt that barely covers her legs because of her six tails lifting it up constantly. The skirt has ruffles that make it mainly wavy. It is held to her body by a small pink belt with a heart shaped buckle in the middle, allowing her to unstrap the belt and fling it at objects or pokemon.

Personality: Rose is the type of pokemon you would think is very sensitive and weak at first glance, but in reality she loves playing with weapons such as guns and knives. She handles weapons pretty well and keeps them near her for extra safety. Rose enjoys having friends around, but sometimes wonders what people think about her since she got infected.

She is highly intelligent and likes analyzing every possibility before doing any action. She is considered a "smart ass" by her friends because of her sarcastic way of being and pointing out stupid comments or actions. She is a show-off when it comes to being smart, often expressing her intelligence frequently to see if she gets praised and receives any type of attention.

She is happy at times, being rather jumpy and sensitive about things people say more often and avoiding violence, but that doesn't mean you won't see her playing around with her knives. She will rarely smile, keeping her happiness to herself but won't stand seeing a friend upset when she's happy. She normally will become upset as well.

When Rose is mad, she will scare most around her. She will use lots of attacks and throw her knives at pokemon around her, or maybe even shoot everything in her way. She will raise her voice and cream while unleashing vine whips from her body.

She normally is in a calm state of mood, messing with her knives and observing everything, a smirk appearing in her face if she sees something stupid or something that makes no sense. She believes that pointing out the flaws of others will help them be better, but in battle she will mock her enemy as she thinks that doing so will get them agitated and therefore making them have more chances in missing an attack.

Rose is somewhat afraid of heights, twitching often when flying in airplanes or when up high. She tries not to look down and simply breathes deeply to keep herself from freaking out. If she freaks out, she might end of not moving and closing her eyes or simply yelling hysterically.

She loves being in the water and going on boat rides whenever she can. She knows the basic instructions on how to ride a boat, being able to reach one continent to another easily, but taking some time while doing so. Rose prefers riding a boat a lot more than riding an airplane, feeling safer near the water then up in the sky.

Background: Rose had a happy life. She would go to school, play around and train a little bit daily. Her parents died when she was six so she was adopted by her aunt, who was a persian. She loved her aunt greatly and her aunt loved her too. She would spend half the time learning how to pilot boats with her aunt and then spend time with her uncle, also a persian, to learn about weapons. She loved playing around with knives and guns.

When Rose turned 11, her aunt and uncle were killed in a plane accident, making her extremely depressed and abandoning school. She started being afraid of heights seeing it was extremely dangerous and that was how her loved ones had died. One day, she was walking around until she accidentally came into contact with a shaymin infection flower. She was infected and now had green fur and couldn't use fire type moves anymore, but now she had the access to grass type moves.

She spent days learning how to use her infection to her advantage, thus finding out the disadvantages as well. She spent four days without drinking water and felt weak, sick and powerless. She decided she didn't want to go through that again, so she bought a water bottle to carry with her at all times.

She took possession of her aunts and uncles belongings, though their house had been destroyed by huge shaymin infected flowers. She now traveled occasionally on her aunt's boat, and used all the weapons her uncle had, being knives of all sorts and a few guns. She researched how to make such weapons, learning slowly as time passed.

Now Rose was 12 and could make a knife from a few metals along with some types of guns. She even learned how to make boats in a book she read. She started moving around more, from city to city and trying to get revenge on the nightjade that made the urban world be destroyed.

As time passed, Rose was soon 13 and went on an adventure through a mountain, and extreme challenge for Rose because she was so terrified of heights. On her way to the top she slipped and fell down a pretty big distance, hurting herself severely. She took a few weeks to get better, but now kept a distance from heights, and twitched every time she got too high off land or sea.

Other: She has 4 different types of knives, two guns and a small sailboat.

Eagle's Squad F



Sorry this is late but I was at school and see the SU's are opened.

Name: Raven son of Core

Gender: Male

Age: 34

Species: Buizel ` Floatzel ` Volpan

Faction: NightJade (I'm with PE2K of course)

Description: (I don't know why they won't allow the picture but alot of people have already seen it) Anyway he have the same brown skin tone. But now his fist and feet are black. By his eyes he have a lighting bolts that come down to his mouth. Also his whole arm is black and his fists have a yellow marking similar to an outlet. Coming from his knees he have another lighting bolt that come to his waist. Next his tail is black and at the end of it is yellow and is similar to a plug. This is where he generates his electricity. I got this from a girl name Silivara.

Personality: Ravan is a natural born strategist. He is able to take down the strongest opponents. He is very wise thanks to the indoor library that he and his father built. Ravan is also very brave and is rarely even scared. When he fights with his enemies he never shows mercy unless they deserve it. Ravan always tells the truth and never like those who lie. Ravan also strives to be the best and takes his duties seriously. Ravan also likes to have fun with his friends. Ravan also love to teach people the right way to go.

Background: Ravan was born in Emerald Coast. There his father was greatly respected and was a Volpan himself. Ravan's father duties was to look for any trouble that might lurk around the city. Once Ravan was 10 he started going on patrol with his father. One day his father were attacked by a group of Urban Unity and kilt. By now Ravan was a Floatzel and started fighting them off with his companion Lio. After his father died Ravan and is friend Lio went into the service quickly advancing through ranks due to being taught by Ravan's dad. Volpan then decided to go on a different mission of his own with his friend Lio.

Ravan decided he wanted a challenge and decided to go into Heartridge Forest. There he trained night and day with Lio. After two years of advance training he himself evolved into a Volpan thanks to his Lucky Thunder-stone that he always carries. Ravan then traveled back to Emerald Coast and quickly became a leader and started paroling areas. He was respected by all. But soon the infection caught up to more locations. He decided he couldn't allow this to continue no further. He quickly chose a successor and started looking for a cure with his friend Lio. Currently they are in the village of Koran.



Other: The only companion he have is Lio which is controlled by yours truly.

-------------------


Name: Lio son of Unknown

Gender: Male

Age: 34

Species: Poocheyena ` Mightyena ` Liowolve

Faction: NightJade

Description: (Read the above one) Lio resembles a wolf only with fire. He have dark skin and from his torso to his underside to his tail is set a flame. On his feet some of it are ablaze. He have nice dark colored eyes. On his face he have strange purple and black markings rumor has it that its a prophecy. Also his ears perk up and usually go down when he is about to pounce. I got the picture from a dude name Shavix.

Personality: Lio is often kindhearted despite his appearance. He is also quiet yet when he talks it is worth listening too. Lio also is very wise and smart. He knows a lot about Pokemon and different factions and history. Lio rarely tells jokes and rarely laughs because of his serious nature. Lio always want to be the best and will train hard non stop without stopping. Because of this he can fight long hours and will not be tired unlike other Pokemon. Because of this he usually chase down his prey. Yet he usually will never want to hurt a fellow Pokemon unless they did something to his best friend Ravan. But other than that he is a lovable wolf that everyone will enjoy to be around.

Background: When Lio was born he didn't know his parents. He traveled and traveled until he stumbled upon a town called Emerald Coast. There he was taken in by a man named Core. He made a friendship with his son and developed a friendly rivalry with him. Everyday they would train non stop having fun. When Lio was 10 he started going on patrol with his friend Raven and his master Core. One day when his master died he protected Raven and in the process evolved into Liowolve. Raven was a little jealous that he, Lio evolved before him but thought better of it.

Then Lio went into a forest called Heartridge Forest and trained there for two years. After that time he went back to Emerald Coast. He advanced through ranks and became Ravan's right hand man. The duo were practically unstoppable. After some time the infection came to their cities. Ravan decided to go and find a cure. Lio knowing he owed a debt to Ravan's family decided to go with him. Now he is in the village of Koran.

Other: He travels with his friend Ravan which is controlled by me.

I hope I'm in.

The Pack




Credit: Tokyokit


Name: Amaranth Raven
Gender: Female
Age: 20
Species: Infected Ninetales
Faction: The Urban Unity

Description:

With the silhouette of a regular Ninetales, you'd think nothing was out of the ordinary. However, something was most definitely awry about this particular vulpine, starting with the greenish tint to her golden fur. Ah, yes...one of the infected. Scanning over her lithe body, you note that the tip of her tails are a darker, richer green than the rest of her fur, the same going for her ear-tips and paw tips. The plume atop her regal cranium is still as silky and vibrant as her "normal" counterparts, the only true difference being the same greenish hue. The gold of her past still manages to shine through with a vibrancy reminiscent of the fire within.

Even without her multidimensional shade, she is a rather unique looking vixen. For one, her muzzle is quite short and feminine, with tiny, delicate whiskers sprouting from either side of her small, black nose. Her eyes, instead of the normal red, or even green, due to her infection, are a startling white shade, opalescent and glazed. She is blind. Her ears are most commonly laid back in suspicion or aggression, since she's not the most friendly of beasts, and her fur is riddled with small indentations and scratches, a tell-tale sign of her violent past. One defining characteristic makes her undeniably recognizable to any who should know her; the brutish scar over her left eye. Not many know the tale behind this scar, and few ever will.

Personality:

Amaranth is a vicious, cunning, and aggressive gal. She is extremely intelligent, but prefers to keep that information to herself, preferring that others think her to be a simple, reclusive, handicapped simpleton. She very rarely speaks to anyone upon first encounter, and instead, chooses to study them. She has become quite adept at catching lies and personalities through the tambre and pitch of those around her, and this makes her quite the supreme interrogator, when she finds things that she deems worthy of interrogating. She's quite proud, and refuses to take her blindness lying down, and has perfected the art of maneuvering by herself in practically any situation she finds herself in. She has a vastness of insecurities, but hides them well through her reclusiveness. She operates primarily as a mercenary, whether it be in the field of fighting or in the field of tactical interrogation, which is what she prefers. Due to her disability, she cannot use or operate weapons, but she is adept in the skills of hand-to-paw combat.

Since she spends so much time to herself, she finds that music is a stimulating hobby, and loves it dearly. After being rejected by so many of her own kin, she has found that music is the only medium that accept her despite her handicap, and in a way, it helps her to see.

Amaranth maintains a violent temper, and is prone to lashing out at others, either through violence or through quick, startling wit. She doesn't maintain many who like her, simply because even for those she does have some semblance of affection for, she speaks mainly in riddles and sarcasm. However, despite her gruff nature, she bears a weakness for innocent souls, such as civilians killed in battle, or for children. That is about as far as her weakness goes, however, and she feels no pity for fallen soldiers or for those who complain about their situation. As far as she's concerned, fate is written by the one who chooses it, and if they don't like their fate based on their own poor decisions, then it's their own damn fault. This is how she accepts her infection, by not feeling sorry for herself and despising those that feel sorry for her.

Background:

Amaranth was hatched out of a clutch of two eggs in the Victakan plains. Her mother's joy quickly turned to sadness, once she saw the abnormal shade of her baby Vulpix's eyes. However, as her brother hatched out of the twin egg, Amaranth quickly asserted her dominance over the weaker brother, and was the first to feed. As nature goes, she was the one to survive the first week. Her father, initially scared by her crippling disability, saw the potential flashing in her unseeing eyes, and was determined to make her just as independent as any other young Vulpix.

He, being a very good fighter himself, started to train the young Amaranth. There was never a day of rest as he taught her to see with her other senses, such as hearing the slightest crackling of a leaf, determining it's location, and thus, locating the area of attack. She learned to walk slowly, using her whiskers and tailtips as guides around obstacles. She started by slowly walking, occasionally bumping into things. Once she could maneuver that, her father taught her to trot, which led to more bruised and bloody noses than the walking. Finally, around the age of 15, she could run in and around obstacles she had never encountered with as much dexterity as a "normal" Vulpix. Throughout this time of simply trying to get around, her father had been teaching her how to battle, and after he determined that she would be more effective at fighting in a more brawler-type fashion than with technology, he taught her how to fight with her natural gifts. However, he did teach her the basics of operating weapons...from a very safe distance.

On the night before her 16th birthday, she was presented with a Fire Stone. Surrounded by her family and friends, she proudly accepted the gift, preparing for her evolution the next day. She could already see herself as a beautiful, golden Ninetales, just like her mother and father. However, there were others who were watching this occasion...a small group of Urban Unity Traitors. You see, the small group of Ninetales enjoyed their modestly neutral existance in the plains, making sure to stay far away from the Red Zone that lurked nearby. The Traitors did not know this, and simply assumed that these were infected scum, hiding out from the main city in an attempt to avoid extermination.

Her mother and father fought hard, pleading for their daughter to run. The small gathering dashed out in many directions as the ambush occurred, and Amaranth followed suit, her Fire Stone clenched firmly in her mouth. She could hear the wails of her family and friends piercing the cold night air, the same night which had been so previously warm and enriched with love and pride. She dashed as fast as her little feet could go, the party of Traitors more focused on the struggling group of Ninetales, rather than one small Vulpix. However, one member had caught her scent, tackling her to the ground, the Fire Stone skittering out of sight. Her pulse was pounding in her ears, her head wildly thrashing in the darkness of the night, and the darkness of her vision. She cried out as she felt a paw swipe across her face, a jagged claw snagging above her left eye and cutting it down to the bottom of her jaw. In that moment, she was helpless.

Even now, she can't tell you if it was the prolonged exposure to the Fire Stone, the taste of her own blood, or her fear that drove her to fight back. She cannot remember her evolution, she simply remembers smelling the sickening smell of charred flesh, and her being on her feet. She felt different, somehow...felt bigger. After it had finally occurred to her that she had evolved, her pain was forgotten for a moment, and a calm relief filled her senses. Something else filled her senses as well...a smell that her father had told her to avoid. Her paws shifted, her pawpads stroking against something soft and flower-like. In her attempt to avoid those who would kill the infected, she herself had become infected. A wave of sorrow washed over her, and she lowered her head in shame. As she lowered her head, her nose touched the Fire Stone that had escaped her grasp in the ruckus, and, lingering there for a few moments in deep thought, decided to accept her fate. The Fire Stone had been the last thing that her father had given her, and she could still hear his voice in her head: "Never be ashamed of who you are, Amaranth. You have more gifts and ability than you know. Never forget that."

For the next 4 years, Amaranth roamed the Victakan and Azmarax areas, her name becoming known as the "Blind Curse", a mysterious, infected Ninetales who was more myth than fact.She performed nothing too great, in her eyes...she simply helped to aid those who were Infected and endangered by Traitors. She would stalk out a suspected area, and once the attack was in motion, she would sweep in to offer aid, and be gone before a thank you could even be thought of. Some thought she was an infected Nightjade, due to her lack of technological warfare and her in-your-face style of combat. Some thought she was a ghost of a deceased, infected Ninetales, soul kept behind in anger towards the Traitors, seeking vengeance, even in death. She figured that this was the closest to the truth.

She remains a nomad, but tends to call Santres as much of a home as she can. She enjoys it due to it's small size, and it's closeness to the water. She still sneers at the fact that she enjoys water, now.


Other: She wears the Fire Stone, empty of power around her neck as a reminder that she should never feel sorry for herself. She occasionally wears a black strip of cloth around her eyes, to keep others from being too distracted by her appearance.
